Norman A. Hall
THOMPSON — Norman A. Hall, 72, of Thompson, died Feb.28, 2023, from medical complications from a recent surgery. He was born in 1950 in Putnam, the son of the late Norman S. Hall and Anne Theresa (Baker) Hall.
Norman attended the Putnam school system and graduated from Ellis Technical Vocational School with a certificate in the masonry trade. Norman owned and operated his own masonry business for more than 40 years. He was a highly skilled and talented mason who built hundreds of fireplaces and chimneys in the surrounding towns. He also owned and operated a chimney sweep business for nearly 30 years, cleaning thousands of chimneys in his career.
Norman loved taking trips to Cape Cod with his family every year and also enjoyed taking his sons fishing when they were younger. After Norman retired from the masonry business, he lived for a few years with his sister in Florida. He loved going to flea markets to find humming birds and bull-dogs to add to his collection. He had a deep love for all animals and passed that along to his children.
He leaves his ex-wife, JoAnn Hall of Thompson; his two sons, Brandon Hall and Noel Hall, both of Thompson; brother Spencer Hall (Linda) of Putnam; sister Karen Hall and Tom Gee of Eastford; and a very close family friend, Jamie Boucher of Thompson, with whom Norman resided after returning from Florida a few years ago. Norman was predeceased by his brother Paul Hall.
